A Day in the Life of a Holt Plumbing and Heating Technician

7:00 AM – Start of the Day

I arrived at the Holt Plumbing and Heating office in West Des Moines, Iowa, ready to tackle another busy day. After grabbing my work orders and tools, I hopped into my service van and headed out to the first job site.

8:30 AM – HVAC Installation

My first task of the day was to install a new HVAC system in a newly constructed home. I worked diligently to ensure proper ductwork placement and refrigerant line connections, following all industry standards and best practices.

11:00 AM – AC Repair

After a successful HVAC installation, I received a call about an AC repair job in Clive. The homeowner reported that their air conditioner was not cooling properly. Upon arrival, I diagnosed the issue as a failing compressor and swiftly replaced it, restoring cool air to the home.

1:30 PM – Lunch Break

With a couple of jobs under my belt, I took a well-deserved lunch break. I grabbed a bite to eat and recharged for the afternoon’s tasks.

2:30 PM – Air Conditioner Service

In the afternoon, I had an air conditioner service scheduled in Urbandale. I performed a thorough inspection, cleaned the coils, checked refrigerant levels, and ensured the system was operating efficiently to keep the homeowners comfortable during the hot summer months.

4:00 PM – Plumbing Service

The last job of the day was a plumbing service call in Johnston. The customer reported a leaky faucet and a slow drain. I quickly identified the issues, replaced the faulty parts, and cleared the clogged drain, leaving the homeowner with fully functional plumbing.

6:00 PM – End of the Day

After a productive day addressing various HVAC and plumbing needs across the Des Moines metro area, I returned to the office to log my work orders and restock my van for the next day’s assignments.

Working for Holt Plumbing and Heating is truly rewarding, as I get to help homeowners and businesses maintain comfortable and efficient living and working environments. Every day brings new challenges and opportunities to showcase my expertise in the HVAC and plumbing industries.
